DreadKhan on Deck of Degeneracy (Purphoros EDH)

Not sure if you're looking for more ideas, but this deck makes me think of one of mine, where I use a few cards that might fit here, one is Citadel of Pain, this is very good in decks that don't use tons of mana on other people's turns, and I think it has good synergy with your Burning Earth for example. Rite of the Raging Storm is a nice source of a creature ETB each turn for no added resources, a 5/1 can matter on some boards, and if it does that player will die extremely quickly if 3 players are piling an extra 15 damage per cycle, the nice thing is it's never going to be you. A really quirky one that drives people up the wall with it's degeneracy is Thieves' Auction, this card is a nightmare to resolve sometimes, but it can easily turn a game on it's head. It's very juicy if your deck features lots of permanents that nobody else wants for various reasons (such as symmetrical effects). Another quirky auction I loved was Illicit Auction, the art is a bit disturbing, but it seems degenerate to pay life to steal a creature, hopefully with your deck you'll be ahead in life and can just steal something important from someone who's deck pays lots of life! Not sure if it actually matters much, but Basilisk Collar is a handy source of Lifelink for Purphoros that works when he's a creature. It is also very good with any creatures that can ping opponent's creatures, and it's hilarious if you have a creature with Trample, such as from Rite of the Raging Storm. I think the last one that might fit in is Gorilla Shaman, this makes a very good mana sink later game while offering a 1 drop creature.

Hope something there will be helpful, I had lots of fun playtesting your deck!

Interesting suggestion regarding the set 'Starter 1999'. I haven't had the chance yet to discuss this with the group.

There were a few Moxen in some games, but I killed them all with my Gorilla Shaman. The group went nuts over it and we started to put a stripe on my shaman every time it destroys a Mox.

If anyone decides to play other P9, we only like to see it happen. And I guess time will tell if anyone actually has the nerve to do so :-)

Thanks for the interest Metroid_Hybrid

I overlooked Sylvan Library, which has been added straight away!

DreadKhan These are all great suggestions, thanks for taking the time!

Thieves' Auction, Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, War Room, Viashino Heretic and Citadel of Pain I will try and slot in.

Reckless Endeavor costs a little too much mana for me and I will certainly keep Vandalblast and Gorilla Shaman in mind if I need more artifact removal.

In my Rakdos deck (which is fairly Chaotic), I like find Thieves' Auction is almost a win con by itself, it's especially juicy if your board includes lands that aren't in the right colours for everyone else and you have a bunch of global effects that work regardless of who controls them, such that you just take a whole bunch of better stuff, including importantly the best thing. It doesn't even target anything, so it gets around almost anything, it's just a stupid 'I want your stuff, have my dreck'.

You might like Blasphemous Act, or maybe Chain Reaction or Reckless Endeavor. You might also like Vandalblast, Viashino Heretic, Gorilla Shaman or Citadel of Pain to discourage people from holding up interaction/burn them out. Not sure if it'll go lower, but War Room is probably a great card in mono-Red.

Ziusdra Scrounging Bandar, Prickly Marmoset, and that stupid monkey represent Old and New World monkeys, while Gorilla Shaman, Uktabi Orangutan, and Ancient Silverback, among others, represent the great apes.

Luminous Hydra

Creature - Hydra


At the beginning of your end step, if you attacked with exactly one creature this turn, put a +1/+1 counter on Luminous Hydra, then if it has six or more +1/+1 counters on it, you may put two +1/+1 counters on each creature you control.


Create a Sphinx Angel or Sphinx Dragon.

Feels like both Gorilla Shaman and Karn, the Great Creator need to be in here.

I don’t think you have much chance if casting Hellkite Tyrant on 20 lands. I’d suggest upping the land count to 22-23 in any case - but regardless I’d also suggest ditching this dragon

I was originally toying with this type of deck but in red and using Gorilla Shaman and Goblin Tinkerer and Roiling Terrain. This is a cool take on it. Bayou Groff might be a good replacement for the Siege Wurm it'll come out before your landshaper and draw fire.
